I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook

I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook A New York Times bestseller, I Quit Sugar is week-by-week guide to quitting sugar to lose weight; boost energy; and improve your looks, mood, and overall health, with 108 sugarfree recipes.

Sarah Wilson thought of herself as a relatively healthy eater. She didn't realize how much sugar was hidden in her diet, or how much it was affecting her well-being. When she learned that her sugar consumption could be the source of a lifetime of mood swings, fluctuating weight, sleep problems, and thyroid disease, she knew she had to make a change.

What started as an experiment to eliminate sugar--both the obvious and the hidden kinds--soon became a way of life, and now Sarah shows you how you can quit sugar too:

    Unclear, Contradictory, and Disappointing, April 22, 2014

    This review is from: I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook (Paperback)
    I really wanted to like this book. My doctor recently recommended I cut back on sugar for the candida factor, and I’d heard the buzz about IQS and thought I’d give it a try. So I did, and I was really into the idea of a sugar detox — but as I read more (the actual program portion of the book is VERY short, as it turns out) I grew increasingly frustrated and disappointed. But the truth is, this book is poorly organized and lacks rigor. I expected Wilson to cite a lot more research and deliver more statistics and actual information, but she didn’t.

    The biggest problem, however, is that it really is not a “program.” There’s hardly any structure. The weekly breakdowns are just collections of sidebars and offer vague tips. She’s also huge on butter, coconut oil, and other foods dense in saturated fat. I’m all for whole, full-fat foods, and I think saturated fat probably has gotten an unfairly bad rap, but the research doesn’t quite exist to support the idea of eating plenty of it — which is why you won’t find any backup in the book. Aside from that, I have a lot of smaller (but actually still important) quibbles: Despite reading it multiple times, I still can’t tell whether you have to give up stevia at any point. Or cinnamon. Furthermore, the recipe section includes a block of “detox” recipes, but it’s not clear whether you’re supposed to stick to those recipes exclusively during the “detox” weeks (which I think are weeks 3 through 5) or throughout the whole program.

    My problem with this book can be summed up by a single, glaring contradiction that I haven’t been able to reconcile despite searching iquitsugar.com extensively and Googling for an answer. I actually did see another reader ask this question in a comments section about the online program, but no one from the customer service team replied to her. Here’s the contradiction — check the book for yourself to confirm (I’m using the paperback U.S. edition):

    * On page 26 (“Week 3: Quit!”), Wilson lists items that “must go” starting that day, “with no exceptions.” Item #1: Fresh and dried fruit, fruit juice.

    * On page 41 (“Week 5: Get Creative, Experiment … and Detox”), Wilson recommends 3 recipes to try that week. The first one is the Sweet Green Meal-in-a-Tumbler, found on page 110. Flip to page 110 and check the first 3 ingredients of the smoothie: 1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 lemon, 1/2 green apple.

    What? Why? Elsewhere in the book she even includes apples on a list of high-fructose fruits that should be avoided altogether.

    I’ll keep the book around for some sugar-free recipes, but that’s about it. I’m just going to cut back on sugar in some smart, basic ways and move on with my life. I’m a little angry that I fell for the marketing, but kudos to the team that put together such a pretty package.

    Nice book for those who are really into eliminating sugar altogether. However, a lot of Stevia and brown rice syrup, (which is surrounded by negative controversy) is used in the recipes of which I am not a fan of. I wish I had been able to review some of this book before I purchased it.

    This review is from: I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook (Paperback)
    The 8 week program is very contradictory and vague. I thought that week by week it would help me cut out different types of sugars and sweets, but one week is just titled “Face The Demons” in which she talks about how others will negatively react to your sugar cut. Yes, that is important to note, but it is not a step in an 8 week plan detailing what I am supposed to eat. I am left with questions like can I eat tomatoes? What is the fructose content of certain veggies and fruits? Can I even eat fruit? She vague references cutting fruit but her recommended recipes for each week often have fruit in them. Fruit is really demonized in this book yet half of the “sugar-free” dessert recipes are full of berries and other fruits. The assertion too that this book helps you plan your pantry and fridge needs is wrong. The recipes call for unique and difficult to find ingredients, and many require a food processor. None of this is outlined in the “Getting Equipped” section.

    I like the general idea of this book but would look to another to find out the real science about sugar. Nothing here is cited and she often gives her own opinion (“I believe we were meant to eat the whole food” – referencing animal fat and skin in Week 2). She notes in the same week that sugar messes with our hormones, yes, but how?? Some facts to back that up would be great.

    Finally, most recipes in the book can be found on the IQS website. I recommend this book only if you are looking for a beautiful cookbook or want something tangible to help kickstart your sugar detox. For the price, it was worth it for me but do not expect a real step by step guide.
